BODY & SOUL
Directed by Oscar Micheaux
USA, 1925, English, 102 minutes 

Black film pioneer Oscar Micheaux's controversial 12th film features a powerful debut screen performance by the multi-talented Paul Robeson in a dual role as an upright but poor inventor and his brother, an utterly corruptsmall-town Georgia preacher who preys upon the unquestioning faith of his congregation.  Featuring footage shot in Atlanta and recently restored by Kino-Lorber with a new musical score by T.J. Spooky, Body and Soul is a potent example of the black-themed films featuring all-black casts made by and for black audiences (termed "race films") in the silent era.

Body and Soul is part of the Plaza Theatre Foundation's Black History Month Film Series. Each film will be introduced by film historian Matthew H Bernstein. For a full series line-up, and other series information, click here
